SMARTBLUE Container for Offshore Asset Safety

SMARTBLUE Container for Offshore Asset Safety

Raytheon Anschütz, a German specialist in maritime systems integration, has recently launched a containerized version of their SMARTBLUE surveillance system during an on-site demonstration in Galveston, Texas. The innovative container solution is a customizable and ready-to-deploy surveillance system complete with Radar, AIS and a long-range surveillance camera on a buy or rental basis for offshore asset protection.

The SMARTBLUE Container Solution improves safety and security standards of offshore assets by providing early warning of collision, reducing risk and aiding decision makers during an incident, but also supports daily operation tasks such as logistics coordination.

Packaged into a standard offshore shipping container (DNV 2.7-1 A60 Safe Area), the solution features extendable radar and camera masts as well as fully wired network architecture. Extendable radar and CCTV masts not only reduce installation and commissioning timelines to just two hours but also make the container easier to transport. The containerized version provides a greater level of flexibility in a variety of applications in that it can be easily and quickly deployed on maritime assets such as FPSO’s and platforms operating offshore in medium to high risk.

James Norwood, Business Development Manager at Raytheon Anschütz’ Portsmouth office, states:
“With the SMARTBLUE container solution, Raytheon Anschütz can provide the maritime and offshore industry with a low risk and cost-effective safety, security and surveillance solution. The container can be delivered ready to connect, and either purchased or rented by the customer. When operational needs change, the system can be easily upgraded to a fully integrated surveillance system.”

At the core of the solution, a fully equipped Command & Control (C2) operator workstation combines the marine surveillance radar, the CCTV camera, the AIS and the communication system into a single, easy to use interface giving the operator a comprehensive surveillance and security tool for maritime assets. The C2 allows the operator to effortlessly use a variety of sensors to detect, track and identify targets entering the vicinity of a vessel, port or other maritime asset. Data-links make sharing information possible with a number of users located on other maritime assets in order to provide a greater understanding of the maritime picture and allow operations to be coordinated more effectively.

The C2 provides the operator with full functionality and control of the system performance, the situational picture compilation and monitoring tasks and supports command and control operations, situation assessment displays, sensor controls as well as alarm zones. In addition to a typical configuration with radar, camera and AIS the C2 system can also include applications such as satellite communications, oil spill detection capabilities which can also predict the track of the spill based on met-ocean information, ice detection, search and rescue coordination and meteorological monitoring depending on the environment, regulations and customer requirements.

Being part of Raytheon Anschütz’ SMARTBLUE surveillance series, the new container solution for offshore site protection and coastal surveillance concentrates the knowledge and experience in maritime system integration and radar technology from more than 400 installations within surveillance and vessel traffic management systems.
Scalable in its capabilities the SMARTBLUE series is laid out to perform surveillance and management of ports, commercial and leisure traffic, fisheries, coastal infrastructure, offshore and subsea assets, pipelines, and environmental issues. It can be installed as a locally operated standalone system capable of protecting an offshore platform, FPSO, oil and gas terminal or vessel in a medium to high risk zone to a fully integrated remotely operated system with multiple radar and CCTV sites giving protection to an oilfield, port or coastline.

Customer care, technical assistance and through life support is provided through the Raytheon Anschütz headquarters in Kiel, through worldwide subsidiaries in Portsmouth, Rio de Janeiro, Singapore, San Diego and Shanghai, and through a qualified network of more than 200 service stations.

Raytheon Anschütz GmbH is a subsidiary of Raytheon Company and a leading supplier of Navigation Systems and Integrated Bridge Systems for all kinds of commercial vessels, specialized vessels, mega yachts, and naval ships. More than 30,000 vessels worldwide are sailing with Raytheon Anschütz navigation systems and are being served by a global network of own subsidiaries, e.g. in Shanghai, Singapore and San Diego, and more than 200 specialized service stations. In 1905, Raytheon Anschütz was founded under the name Anschütz & Co in Kiel, Germany, just one year after Dr. Hermann Anschütz-Kaempfe invented the gyro compass. More information:
